Thai Rath reported that passengers with head, arm and leg injuries crawled out of the double-decker bus and waited for rescue on the side of the road between kilometer markers 50 and 51. 

The accident happened yesterday evening in heavy traffic as people made their way back to Bangkok after the long weekend.

Driver Surasak Kertphum, 45, said there was a long tailback of several kilometers and this combined with roadworks led him to undertake on the hard shoulder. 

He hit an area of subsidence with his left side front wheel and lost control of his vehicle.
